, nasa has been charged by congress with keeping a 24-hour-a-day seven-day-a-week watch on the skies, and they're doing this principally with three observatories in new mexico, california and puerto rico, that have discovered about 98% of all the asteroid we know that are out there. >> axelrod: if they identify a potential threat what can then be done by way of a defense system? well, that's a real possibility. you don't want to destroy these things. they're too dangerous and it's too impractical. what you can do is deflect them. nasa has already perfected the art of landing on asteroids orbiting asteroids and we even fired an impactor into the side of a comet to study the debris. you can do the same impact mod welan asteroid and speed it up or slow it down by as little as a few centimeters a second. that way had it arrives at earth's orbit we've already passed by or haven't arrived at the rendezvous yet. >> axelrod: just a fraction. >> just a fraction. >> axelrod: in south africa today the extended family of olympic runner oscar pistorius came to his defense claiming the state's own

to earth. this is video of nasa tracking the asteroid as it moves across the sky -- it is about the size of a football field. at its closest point, the asteroid, which is named 20-12 d-a-14, was just more than 17-thousand miles above the earth's surface. that's lower than some satellites. and while it's too far away to see with naked eye -- there is at least one spot you can go to check it out tonight. we'll show you where -- coming up at 5:30 will you could certainly see the sun out there for today is shining brightly. warm temperatures around the bay area. it is in the '70s in many locations. san francisco not a cloud in the sky. temperatures in san francisco at 70 degrees. low '70's in a lot of places. '70s for a sunnyvale and san jose. 75 degrees in oakland. absolutely beautiful day today. it's going to hang out for most of the weekend. in the meantime look for clear skies tonight. a little bit of patchy fog and a warm day tomorrow but another warm day look for highs in the '70s. things will be pulled down in san francisco but still a warm day. and a few minutes will share next week.

is at the nasa ames center in mountain view this morning to talk to us more about the meteor and then also the timing of it all because a big space rock is headed toward earth. >> reporter: yes, that's exactly right, frank and michelle. to every you go more information about that meteor though, russian scientists say that meteor entered earth's atmosphere about 33,000 miles per hour and hit the ground. more than 700 people are recovering from the meteor's shockwaves that fall caused explosions that broke glass over a wide area and it caught most people off guard. >> terrified. i just hit the snooze bar on my iphone for another nine minutes of sleep and all of a sudden, i fell back asleep and i hear this loud bang! >> reporter: now, this comes on the same day an asteroid known as 2012da14 is headed towards earth. it will make the closest fly-by of an object its size. the meteor and the asteroid are not related. it's coincidence that they are both happening in the same time frame. researchers say this asteroid is not expected to make an impact on earth.
there are a million such objects out there. nasa is doing a very good job cataloging all the ones they can, but so far they've been able to find just about 10,000 of them. so we're a little ways away from having the complete inventory. >> schieffer: well, let me just ask you this question-- is there something the government ought to be doing or science ought to be doing that it's not doing? >> actually, believe it or not we are handling this one well. in 1995, nasa authorized-- or rather, congress authorized nasa to scan the skies 24 hours a at day, seven days a week, to look for these objects and we're doing it at three observatories in california, new mexico, and puerto rico. and those three observatories have accounted for about 98% of the bodies we know are out there. now, there are ways to defend ourselves once we know it's out there. and we have the technology to do it. it's just a question of putting the money together and deciding to do that. >> schieffer: all right well, that is a little bit reassuring, and thank you very much for helping us on something that most of us know absolutely nothin

to discover more asteroids than earth-based telescopes have over the past 30 years. nasa has reportedly found most of the big asteroids that could wipe out mankind, but the smaller ones that could take out cities or regions, we only know about 1% of those. the goal for sentinel is to find those, and if we have several years warning scientists believe we could deflected any earth-bound rocks away from us. the bottom line, they don't want us to be blind-sided like we were yesterday when a large ten-ton meteor barrelled across the sky in siberia, traveling 59 more than 30,000 miles per hour, creating a shockwave that blew out windows and knocked down part of a factory. more than 1,000 people were injured. also yesterday, a 150-foot asteroid gave earth a close shave, passing 17,000 miles above the planet's surface. what's unnerve being that one, astronomers discovered it last year, too late do us any good if it was going to hit us. the asteroid gods treated the bay area to an amazing light show last night this is video of a fireball streaking across our sky around 8:00 in the evening. today the a

-meter asteroid and nasa says it will get closer at around 7:30 gmt, pm, on friday. it is not expected to hit the earth but the bad news is it could affect satellites orbiting the earth. >> satellites of this size passed by the earth once every 40 years in the last someone hit the earth was in 1908 and caused devastation in a region of russia. the next time could be 40 years, an impact could damage the world's communications system badly. the world relies on the satellite systems far more heavily than most of us realize. all of our aircraft and motor transport systems run on satellite gps and mills and many of the world's clocks are based on signals from space and most of our telecommunications and television signals, at some point, pass across satellites. if the satellite system was damaged, the world would go dark, on that cheery little mouth, --note, it will affect telecommunications. >> thank you very much, not very -- nothing very dark about you. still to come -- could liverpool fc face racial abuse when they play in russia tonight? ♪ ♪ >> at least four people have been killed

. this is a serious thing right? people say why doesn't nasa do something about it, and there are cool old political reasons. first of all, it wasn't part of nasa's charter it wasn't human space flight or science it's just cataloging objects that are scientifically understood, blah blah blah blah. we work hard to raise awareness of this, and so oh, we are maybe getting there. cenk: how much money do you think is needed to catalog it? >> it's a great question. there's two things we do wrong as c.e.o. of a non-profit. we don't ask for money and then we don't ask for enough. cenk: so fix it right now. don't be like a down sore, fix it. >> we can approach the problem in two ways, first to get the sentinel spacecraft flying, that's about $450 million. then between now and when that could possibly happen, it's about that much money and then after that, to go deflect one it's about that much money. cenk: we're talking about a billion. >> 1.5 billion. it's what the curious city rover cost. we might find something on mars that might dare i say it, change the world. cenk: bush said let's go drill on mars, it'
'm not a professor but -- >> i'm not actually an expert, so it's okay. how do we miss that? >> the thing is, nasa really is tracking thousands of objects that are objects of interest near earth asteroids. this thing was small and frankly the direction it was coming from was towards the sun. so we didn't see it. sometimes we spot things just days before they pass by. and some things we track for years in advance. >> so this we just barely -- or unfairly, we missed. we could miss other stuff. should we pour money into equipment or technology that would see more of that stuff, however small? i'm all for putting money into nasa. it's half a percent of our budget. only a small fraction of that goes towards this, monitoring the earth's asteroids. it might be important in the long run. but like i said, they do track some things for years. there's many things that we're aware of. but the solar system is not eight planets, there are millions of objects making up the solar system. >> you say you're not a professor, you come off as a very good one. thank you very much. i appreciate it. >> thanks. >> neil: i
